Blacklock is a modern version of the Great British chophouse. Set in an old electricity substation on the site of London"s oldest meat market. We take the best meat in the country from the award-winning farmer and butcher Philip Warren in Cornwall. We cook chops simply over our real charcoal grill with a little help from vintage Blacklock irons and serve it all up alongside cocktails for a fiver and wine on tap in our atmospheric subterranean chop mecca.

Bookings:

Service and food were perfect, the waiter was super helpful explained the menu. We went on a Monday when they have the butcher special which made it very affordable. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked. Will go back.

This restaurant is amazing for meat lovers. The value is for money makes this place an excellent lunch time venue. The meat is cooked perfectly and the side dishes are quite amazing too. The staff are very welcoming, friendly, polite and attentive - eager to please and always smiling which is rare these days. I'm a frequent visitor and book ahead of time to avoid disappointment as this place is in demand!

I was looking for a venue for my girlfriend's birthday and Blacklock was highly recommended by several people to me. I was not disappointed. The staff were lovely, they couldn't have been more welcoming or friendly. They really made us feel like we were valued customers. Even explaining the menu and how things worked, which must be boring to recite, was delivered with real passion and made us feel like the staff really care about their food and the customers enjoyment of it.

The All-In is amazing value - so many different chops and the sides were delicious. The pre-chop bites were not all to my taste but I did really enjoy the Cheese and Pickle bites. The £5 Old Fashioned was a bargain. I've paid a lot more in other places and this was just delightful and perfectly made. The chops were such good quality and treated with care. I recommend the Sweet Potato as it was my favourite side and possible best bit of the meal, although it was all delicious. The staff brought out a cheesecake with a candle in for my girlfriend (as per my request at time of booking) and she was delighted, as was I.

Please do go to Blacklock. It's amazing, fantastic value and you won't be disappointed.

We had the skinny cuts menu. Good cuts of pork belly, lamb, pork chop and rump steak. Good value at £20 - includes a canapé type starter and one side. Draught beer is £4 for a half-pint which even by London standards is extraordinary. We made a joke about it and got a free one. Wine was good value, not a huge list but enough to choose from. Service was excellent. Would definitely go back

Can't fault the food; that was excellent. What was disappointing was the service. A waiter came to our table at the end of a meal with a lager/beer none of us had ordered. We made it clear that we hadn't ordered the beer (as we had been drinking Pinot Noir all evening). The bill came at the end of the evening and I settled it; it was approx £204 including service charge. I was annoyed when I got home to discover that the restaurant had in fact charged me for the beer we had explicitly told them we had not ordered (and they had taken away). The beer wasn't expensive, but it was the principle. It was a sneaky move; hoping I wouldn't scrutinize the receipt. Left a bad taste in my mouth to be honest with you. Disappointing.

Posto perfetto per una cena tra amici!
Buonissima carne, contorni niente male (da provare le patate dolci al forno) e ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo.
Servizio perfetto con camerieri gentili e molto disponibili.
Uniche note dolenti: la musica un po’ troppo alta (è impossibile parlare senza urlare) e i dolci (solo due opzioni molto buone ma troppo pesanti dopo una cena a base di carne)

had a great early evening dinner with my son. Perfect for him as it was very relaxed for a 'City' location.
We had a shared rib (900grammes) and they cooked it perfectly. I'd heard about the gem lettuce with anchovy paste and that was a super accompaniment. Service couldn't have been friendlier and everything was well managed.

What an amazing find. If you love meat and creative sides then this is your space!

Fantastic cuts of beef for an incredibly low price, and let's not even talk about the sides. The chips cooked in beef drippings are nothing like I've ever tasted before. Crispy yet succulent on the inside, and full of so much flavour - they don't taste as sinful as they actually are.

Do not forget to try the kale and parmesan dish!

Carnivores, you will not be disappointed.

Enjoyed your All in One menu and it gave me an idea of what I would specify to order next time. The kale and Parmesan was a real winner! Bread and butter pudding delicious. Cocktails tasty and good value. Would have preferred to be able to specify the starter bite rather than one of each (Stilton one was by far the tastiest)
